“Was what was happening to me normal? My entire life was turned upside down.”

2:07: Lynette started providing menopause information 15 years ago. We were curious how she came to the realization that there was such a lack of information for women entering menopause. Like so many who carve out a new path, Lynette discovered the need when looking for herself. She quickly realized there weren’t many resources to help her understand her own “weird” symptoms. In our podcast, she details her unique journey from knowledge seeker to knowledge provider.

“Just to find out that we were not alone, that all of us had been sort of hit upside the head by menopause, was a huge relief.”

7:56: With so many years of Menopause Goddess research and writing behind her, we knew Lynette had some great remedies and solutions to share. So we went straight for the good stuff: what unique menopause remedies could she let us in on? She shares with us the biggest, best, most powerful remedy of all.

“Eat well, move, and love well.”

15:54: So what are some weird symptoms you’ve heard about? we wanted to know. Ever heard of “Burning Lip Syndrome”? Nope? Us neither, and neither had Lynette until a reader asked her about it. The remedy will seriously surprise you…. On a more serious note, a woman’s immune system can take a plunge during her menopause transition, and Lynette lets us in on what can happen and why we need to be doing what we can to boost our immune systems, no matter our age.

“Menopause will set you free, but it will really piss you off first.”

26:26: The Menopause Goddess blog has a very loyal following and continues to attract new readers; what’s made the blog so popular? “Plain talk,” Lynette says. Yes, her translation of complicated but useful medical information has been very helpful, but it’s not the main attraction. What brings readers back is the “distilled wisdom” of many, many women sharing their experiences and knowledge. That broader community is a wealth of riches for new readers to discover.
